Mexico City is paradise for history buffs but regardless of your age or interests, the one place you must visit while there is the National Museum of Anthropology.
It’s the most visited museum in the entire country.
It’s in a room full of amazing pieces-in total, there are over 600,000 artifacts in the museum.
A courtyard in the middle of the museum showcases a giant umbrella cascading water down the sides.
The National Museum of Anthropology is located in gorgeous Chapultepec Park just a few minutes walk from the zoo and about a 20-minute walk from Four Seasons Hotel Mexico, D.F. where we stayed.
On Sundays, museums are free to residents so avoid any museum on this day because they are crowded.
On Mondays, the museum is closed, as are most of the museums in town.
